New Approaches

When I wake up I have to acclimate myself to the new day – In no way do I automatically continue the ‘mood’ of yesterday. When I go to sleep the night before, I try to program my mind for continuation, but it doesn’t happen. New emotions command me – I seem to have a whole new body, full of different sensations than I fell asleep with.

I suppose that makes me primed to try something new. Continuity be damned. I don’t mean that. I see a different kind of continuity – a next step, not necessarily on the same route, but headed in the same direction…an expression of learning, not random, but taught.

I’ve been studying how to improve this website, to greatly expand this readership – to convert subscribers into regular book buyers (my books, naturally) and to expand my coaching practice. Ready to try new approaches

That’s what is behind this invitation – I invite you to participate in the second "Success Principles" workshop. This has proven to be an exceptional introduction to the benefits of coaching as well as a valuable refresher course if you are already familiar with coaching.

I have had incredible and useful feedback from the people who are in the current Workshop and want to extend the invitation to you.

Like I said, I'm redesigning my website to reflect these changes – They’ll be up very soon.

Useful Quotations

What we see depends mainly on what we look for.
John Lubbock

I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am, I know I am not a category. I am not a thing -- a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process -- an integral function of the universe.
Buckminister Fuller

To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Bruce Lee

 So what do we do? Anything - something. So long as we don't just sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we've satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late
Lee Iacocca

Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our attitudes toward life. The longer I live the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it.

I am reading my poetry, looking
For a poem to plug in here,
A peculiar form of lazy

But poetry comes from my fingers
A New Approach, of course,
On the path of poetry,
Where I can let my mind and
Soul soar beyond reality,
In gratitude for a future yet to be,
For children soon to grace
Our lives,
Another unknown tomorrow

I have four blogs:

Creating Today - A daily journal on creativity
Contributing Coaching - Creating New Futures
Blogging for the Reading - Making a Difference in how we Create
Michael's Articles - articles that don't fit anywhere else.

And please tell your friends!!!
